Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2016 -

As with previous Blogger’s Quilt Festivals there will be lots of great prizes and fun to go along with all the quilty inspiration and friendships to be made! It’s always been a fun way to get to know other quilters, even if they aren’t nearby.

Each quilter can enter up to two quilts, each with it’s own post, and in separate categories. One quilt per category. All the categories are listed here so you can start making plans and writing posts now. Your quilts don’t have to be brand new, never seen before – share your favorites!

Mini Quilt Category – Quilts in this group measure no more than 80″ around.

Small Quilt Category – Quilts in this group measure more than 80″, but no more than 240″ around.

Large Quilt Category – Quilt in this group measure over 240″ around.

Applique Quilts – Hand or machine applique is welcome.

Art Quilts – Express yourself with fabric.

Hand Quilted – Quilted by hand.

Home Machine Quilted – Quilted on a domestic machine.

Modern Quilts – Modern to you, is modern to me.

    Thanks so much for hosting this again and in blog form. I wanted to participate on IG last time but sorry, I could not figure it out or what and when to do anything. (very IG challenged) Thanks so much

    Amy, it says winners are announced on “Sept 31st” — I think not, LOL!! Is it the 30th (with voting ending the 29th) or October 1st? In either case, really looking forward to it!!

    HI Amy. Thank you so much for doing this. I’m really pleased to see it back on blogs. I did participate on IG, but there were just so many quilts, and no real stories behind them. I love discovered new quilters through this festival, and reading about their inspiration and methods. I’ looking forward to the launch tomorrow.
